By giving your consumer an omnichannel experience, you can personalize your marketing message and connect with consumers in a more meaningful way. In this blog post, we will discuss four omnichannel strategies that are sure to take your marketing campaigns to the next level.
4 Omnichannel Strategies to Level Up Your Marketing
Consumers are always changing their behavioral patterns. When the pandemic began, for example, we watched social media use, digital purchasing, and streaming entertainment statistics reach new heights.
That said, it’s important to always be reaching your audience where they are spending most of their time! Over-the-top (OTT) advertising is a type of digital marketing that allows you to place your ads on popular streaming platforms like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, and more.
OTT advertising is growing at a rapid pace, with spending on OTT ads expected to reach $15 billion by 2023. This omnichannel strategy is perfect for brands that want to target cord-cutters and streamers with attention-grabbing, personalized messages.
Geofencing essentially creates a virtual fence around a specific area and targets consumers who are within that area. Geofencing is a powerful solution that can help you reach your target audience, based on their location. This omnichannel strategy is perfect for brick-and-mortar businesses that want to drive foot traffic to their stores.
You can use geofencing to send targeted messages to consumers, based on their location. For example, if you’re a clothing store, you could send a message or ad to consumers near your store, offering a discount on their next purchase.
Google + Social Ads
Google and social ads are two of the most popular omnichannel strategies for businesses. Google ads allow you to target consumers based on their search queries, interests, and known demographics. Social ads allow you to reach more prospective consumers on popular social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn.
Programmatic advertising is a type of advertising that uses automation to place ads on websites, apps, and other digital platforms. Programmatic advertising is growing at a rapid pace, with spending on programmatic ads expected to reach $84 billion by 2023. This omnichannel strategy is perfect for brands that want to reach their target audience with personalized messages, at scale.
